- DNOW 2020 -
DNOW is an overnight local retreat where students will have the opportunity to spend the weekend together in worship services, community, and games.
The hope for this weekend is that students’ lives will be transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ; that they will be able to worship collectively with their peers and classmates from other churches. We want our students to understand that even though we go to different churches, we all have the same purpose - to glorify God.
Dates: January 17, 2020 (5:30p) - January 19, 2020
Registration Cost: $75
Theme: Rescue is Coming
Our community is walking around with family wounds, relationship wounds, mental health wounds and much more. These wounds manifest themselves through a lack of motivation, anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. We need to remind our community that Rescue is Coming and they can have hope and healing today.
Scripture: Revelation 21:1-8

Want to help? Here’s what we need:
Host Homes- Students will be split up into area homes based on grade and gender. Each home will consist of approximately 10-14 people. The host provides a place for students to sleep Friday and Saturday nights and is also where small group Bible study and meal times happen.
Food Coordinators- We ask volunteers and life groups to work with one or two host homes to provide food for Saturday breakfast as well as helping to furnish enough paper goods, drinks, and snacks for the weekend. Saturday dinner will be pizza at the church this year, so if you'd like to help donate toward that cost, please email .
Drivers- Throughout the weekend, we need the support of many people to drive students around. This year, that involves helping get students from the church to the host homes on Friday evening, from the host homes to the church on Sunday morning, and between the homes, the church and one area event on Saturday.
